Review Date: Wed September 23, 2009 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: $4,500.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Good quality, very solid fiberglass construction, nice looking classic sailboat
Cons:

This is my first cruising boat, since I always sailed on a Sunfish.

Construction is solid rock and the heavy long keel is secure and reliable.

Since I use to sail her on Lake Saint-Louis near Montreal I need robustness because there are shallow waters everywhere.

This boat is constructed without balsa core so is heavy but almost unbreakable.

Therefore, she has no soft spots or any other issue on fiberglass structure.

I already sail her at 5,5 knots and I never has worry except because she heels fast and easily.

I recommend this boat for every beginner and people interested in cruising. I also recommend this sailboat for those who like classic boats.
